...half a bottle of wine?? i can't seem to drink anything anymore without feeling extremely sluggish and jaded the next day. i'm usually ok by the afternoon, but it ruins my morning on average 3 times a week.

i'm a silly bugger for drinking at all, but it's SO tempting to crack open a bottle of wine. anyone else find the same?

are you not used to drinking henni? i know through repeated experience how it'll affect me the next day!

Anything over two glasses affects me the next day.

henni, you mean the last time you drank a drop was at xmas?

hennipenni Sat 24-Feb-07 20:20:25

Yep, the last time I drank alcohol was at christmas party in early dec

omg, henni, thats incredible. how do you do it?? not even on xmas day? have you just given birth??

kitty, was it a VERY big glass?

noonar Sat 24-Feb-07 20:25:16

henni, sorry that sounded mad. what i meant was that pregnancy is the only reason for not drinking, taht i am familiar with.

my bro was saying just the same today. maybe its getting older that does it.

I know what you mean, drinking is just not the same since kids. Having to get up early etc, just can't cope with hangovers any more!

hennipenni Sat 24-Feb-07 20:28:02

No, have not given birth (well not for at least 6 yrs), dunno why I don't really drink, don't really enjoy the taste to be honest, sometimes wish I did drink more,woulf rather have a big bar of choccy

I can have a hangover on no alcohol at all. REally. I've often gone to a party, or a night out with friends, had massive fun without touching a drop of booze, and been completely hungover the next day.

Takes talent.

Contary to my performance in the bar most nights i only drink about twicwe a year, but used to knock back ALOT when I was single 1 glass and i start to giggle now, and die the next day.

Sometimes on the schoolrun I see other peoples glass recycycling boxes that are full of beer/wine bottles etc, ours are full of olive oil, mayonnaise bottles etc, sometimes wish ours were full of alcohol bottles!
